Heavy rain has been lashing the Madi area, causing the river to rise significantly. As a result, all traffic between Bharatpur and Parsa Thori via Madi has been halted.

The Chitwan District Administration Office issued a warning on Wednesday, citing heavy rainfall recorded at the Kalyanpur Rain Measuring Center in Madi. They have urged residents to remain vigilant and aware of the potential for flooding in other Riu Khola tributaries within Madi.
